The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, business associates, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically. The security rule requires appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and security of electronic protected health information. The breach rule covers the breach notification procedures introduced by the HITECH act for unsecured protected health information.
